Behold, He who keeps Israel
Will neither slumber nor sleep.
Psalm 121:4

  There are, “beholds,” all through scripture as we study God’s word, but when John the Baptist saw Jesus, he made an unforgettable statement. “Behold,” give attention to this...”This is the Lamb of God that takes away the sins of the world!” 
When God was speaking to the Apostle John, 

  He said, “Behold, (give attention to this), Lo, I come quickly.” 

   Are we choosing in the midst of what we see to say, “Behold, the Lamb of God!"?  Have we chosen not to give in to discouragement and despair? 

We don’t live by sight, we live by faith. Whenever we move into a place of discouragement or despair we have taken our eyes off of Jesus. We have let the situation and circumstances steal our courage to believe. 

 Do you know what it means to be discouraged? It means your courage has been taken from you.

 I know that God is good and because of that I know He has a purpose in what we are walking through. If we will look to Him as the eyes of a servant look to their masters, He will be faithful to show us the way. 

Jesus not only wants to instruct us, He wants to make Himself known to us. Remember, one of His names is Emmanuel, “God with us,” in our circumstances.

Lift up your eyes on high, and behold who hath created these things, that bringeth out their host by number: he calleth them all by names by the greatness of his might, for that he is strong in power; not one faileth.
Why sayest thou, O Jacob, and speakest, O Israel, My way is hid from the Lord, and my judgment is passed over from my God?
Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding.

Isaiah 40:26-28 King James Version (KJV)

The greatest builder of faith is not answered prayers, it’s the process of waiting.
